Chris Cosgriff !!


Yup, he went and did it. He will graduate from a Virginia based police academy on September 20th and will be a fulltime police officer at a police department in his area.


As a young 'civilian', Chris founded the Officer Down Memorial Page (ODMP) in 1996. Then Chris was the catalyst to get PoliceLink up and going in 2007. He and I worked together on PoliceLink until just a couple of years ago. He went to work fulltime on ODMP and then moved forward in LEO-Land. He still works the ODMP site but now will be a fulltime officer as well.


So, how about that?


I don't know if he'll have a chance to stop in to say Howdy but doggonit, ... he went and did it! I will try to nudge him to reply to our discussion.


Congratulations, Chris! I know it's been a dream of yours. You're just about there and a fulltime police officer job is already in hand.


Very cool !

 That is cool. I don't know what else to say but "Congratulations!" (If he stops by.)

I am IMPRESSED!!!  Jolly good show, Chris!!  I always thought you looked like you'd make a good cop.  With your record of deeply caring cyber-community service, I am certain your new on-ground community will find you to be a major asset in the daily duties - 


To Protect and Serve.


The very best of luck to you, Chris!!

I am impressed, it's a long way from his beginnings here at PL. I hope he does well and watches his 6. Well done Chris, well done.

Congrats Chris...


It must have been something for the folks on your interview board, to be sitting across from you, hearing about your pre-LEO accomplishments!
